Security Protection.



Security Protection is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Malware Protection.
This rogue displays false scan results in order to trick you into thinking that your computer is infected. When this infection is installed on your computer it will be configured to start automatically. Once started it will scan your computer and list numerous infections, but if you attempt to remove any of these so-called infections it will state that you first need to purchase the program in order to remove anything. As these scan results are all fake, please do not purchase this program based upon anything it states.

While running, Security Protection will also display fake security alerts on your computer. These security alerts are used to make you think that there are various security problems on your computer.

As you can see, the warnings issued by this program are all fake, and once you realize that, the alerts become more of a nuisance rather than a concern. Therefore, do not purchase Security Protection for any reason, and if you already have, please contact your credit card company and state that the program is a computer infection and a scam and that you would like to dispute the charge.


Removal:
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • defender.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %AppData%\defender.exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Security Protection"
Although it is possible to manually remove Security Protection, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
